Meetings on Dade County Shore Protection

The USACE, Jacksonville District, has invited the public to provide comments on the draft Environmental Assessment and draft Finding of No Significant Impact for the Identification of Alternative Sand Sources for the Remaining Period of Federal Participation, Dade County Beach Erosion Control and Hurricane Protection Project.

The Limited Reevaluation Report is available for informational purposes only. Both the Limited Reevaluation Report and the Environmental Assessment contain the same information regarding recommendations of the Corps.

The Corps plan recommends utilizing sand from borrow sources in federal waters outside of Miami-Dade County, including one source in Martin County and one in St. Lucie County. The plan allows for upland sources to be used for smaller renourishment projects such as those with requirements of less than 200,000 cubic yards.

Two small Miami-Dade County sand sources, Bakers Haulover Inlet ebb shoal and Lummus Park will continue to be used.

One of our key objectives is to keep information transparent so our partners and the public are well-informed and engaged. These upcoming public meetings are part of this collaborative process, so we can present new information, answer questions and receive comments,” said Corps project manager Jason Harrah.

The public comment period on the draft Environmental Assessment and Finding of No Significant Impact begins Friday, July 31 and closes Friday, October 2, 2015.

The Corps will host three public meetings:

  • Miami-Dade County:  Tuesday, August 25, 6:30 p.m. – 8:30 p.m.at the Miami Beach Commission Chambers, 1700 Convention Center Drive, Miami Beach, Florida, 33139;
  • Martin County:  Tuesday, August 26, 6:30 p.m. – 8:30 p.m.at the Jupiter Island Commission Chambers, 2 Bridge Road, Hobe Sound, Florida, 33455;
  • St. Lucie County:  Wednesday, September 2, 6:30 p.m. – 8:30 p.m.at the St. Lucie County Commission Chambers – Roger Poitras Administration Annex, 2300 Virginia Avenue, Fort Pierce, Florida, 34982.
